$100 for >=100% - Doom 2 demo challenge

Recommended Posts

map18demo.zip -- 32/63/50 in 1:48. Just a quick attempt for fun.

 

This is a neat challenge because you can be creative in how you approach it. Everyone is gonna beat my time, but it was nice to have a go anyway :3

Also although I am not going to ban myself if I violate my own rule and miss my own deadline, everyone will know that I am willing to throw away 20+ years of goodwill accumulated from my unblemished record of not defrauding Doomworld forum members out of money I owe them.

To engender public trust, I propose that the money is placed in an escrow account in all such cases.

Even if you don't get the money, it could still be fun trying for a certain number combo.

Oh god, Ling just can't tolerate the cash thing and make an "official" challenge. The rules are way more interesting than getting 100% item for a stupid map with a time limit. Will definitely try to do one when I have time.

No. I wish there was a way to encourage more demos in general given that Ancalagon just dropped a huge gauntlet immediately.

For some reason, seeing Moustachio get his score beaten by just 2 seconds cut me deep

Tried a 50% secret route, but it doesn't really work out because you need to run back and forth, but hey, it's fun to try.

Am I right in thinking all of these attempts are invalid because the final %s don't add up to 100? Or did I misunderstand the rules?

 

Edit: I'm an idiot, the rules said at least 100, not exactly 100. Never mind!

I don't understand how Dime got a valid exit with his casino strategy (did he just pray really hard for good infightings to happen?). Had to try something different...

Memfis and throwing shade. Not an unexpected combo.

Bunch of attempts ended with 95-99%. For an ok time I think it is fine to rely on an outlier attempt in this challenge.

Intrigued, I must say... What did I miss?

By the way, for challenges like this, are tool-assist submissions allowed, expected, discouraged - disclosed or not? I only ask because it would seem like originality might help bring submissions to the top (TAS itself is no longer 'original', but an interesting category of their own).

Hm, I apologize if my comment sounded bad, I was actually trying to express amazement. When I tried Dime's route, I usually needed like 50 seconds to get 100%, so I think it's crazy that he got such a good time with it.

The cool part about your demo Memfis, I was theorycrafting what might be a superior route to mine and thought that up midday hitting up the BFG afterwards letting the pinkies roll out.

We can use my Paypal account as an escrow account.

Heh, I had a bit more fun with this than I'd like to admit.  I plateaued at 43 (I stole memfis' path to get the 43).  Here's a pile of each "personal best" in one zip, for sake of completeness.

I kinda wish the bluekey bottleneck wasn't there so you could go wild with exploring the other would-be viable options, but pretty cool anyways.
